Program Focus: Knowledge
Upon completion, each participant in the Web seminar will be able to:
1. Identify normal and abnormal vestibular function using clinical pathways.
2. Apply appropriate clinical and technology-based diagnostic methods for vestibular patients.
3. Interpret vestibular test abnormalities that identify patients who would benefit from Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy.
Patients with dizziness often pose an interesting challenge for practitioners. This course will provide attendees with an overview of assessment and management using an evidence-based Clinical Pathways approach. This approach provides clinicians with a systematic method to proceed through the evaluation and remediation process. Proper correlation of patient history and symptoms, appropriate tests, interpretation of findings and use of correct treatment protocols will be stressed. The program will be supplemented by case studies for a variety of populations..
